Hi everyone, First time posting on this forum having spent many hours researching on Somersoft. We are wanting to invest in the Brisbane region and have been looking at different areas but looking at the moment in Western Brisbane. Looking at the $250,000 mark house, which I know limits my options. Have been looking at Ipswich, Gailes, Goodna, Booval, Riverview areas purely based on the numbers and initial location. Cost of houses seem low, rental returns seem pretty good, radius to the city is good, rail link and road links to city are good with transport links due for improvements as well. I'm planning on flying up to look around these areas to get a feel for them, but want people's thoughts, options and personal experiences on these spots. I know these areas were affected by the 1974 and 2011 floods, which I'm guessing is why prices are lower than other areas. - North and south Brisbane seem to be very popular with investment chat with prices going on the rise. Do you feel there is room for growth out West in these areas? - Do you think West Brisbane will take a similar path as Western Sydney on terms of demand? I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Many thanks.
